After reading various topics about the arduino controlled dividing head , and after being reassured by some other members that the programming of the arduino isn't that hard at all , I decided to give it a try . Here are my first experiances , snags hit , and some random thoughts . First thing I did was get me an arduino for dummies . Buy it , or search for it on the net . There are pdf's and epubs out there to read it on a tablet It starts at the very possiblest basic entry level , sometimes a little to basic even for a dummy like me , and guides you trough the setup and uploading a sketch . Then some basic proramming with increasing difficulty .
